Track Name: Smothered
Happy for the hour
We can repair
And in this moment we are growing
We can do better
We can do whatever
It takes to (two)
Keep it together
Soon we’ll be on our own
So you got the feeling
Of what you got in your hand
Just because you can feel it
Don't mean you understand
So get a grip
But not too tight
You may find that you can suffocate
And strangle out all of the life
Honey I am not your baby
You're smothering me again
The space between is never quite enough
Your open arms appear more like trap doors
Shoulders can't support the weight
Goodbyes really aren't your thing
Knotted intestine welcomed over this
Brought together in order to separate
It's hard to be yourself when you're tangled with another
Throw in the anchor to the water but you'll never reach the bottom
Lost in the wind cold breeze and crowded by the clutter
I'm smothered
Track Name: Leave Home/Get High
When you leave home I get high
When you get stoned I feel right
I want to know are you even trying
I love it when you worry about me and talk about me
You make me feel I matter more than I do
When you leave home I get high
When you leave home I get high
And you talk about the small things
like they don’t matter no more
They never mattered at all
Cognition is like a painting mind over matter control
Do you pray to your god anymore?
I want you to know
it's all pretend
When you leave home I get high
And Climb a mental mountain
It’s the start of the world
And the end of our lives
I think we both know we were born already dying
I love it when you worry about me and talk about me
You make me feel I matter more than I do
When you leave home I get high
When you leave home I get high
When you leave home I get high
(I want to know are you even trying)
When you leave home I get high
(Are you trying?)
Track Name: Lady Fingers
When you speak you look incredible
Good enough that I'd swear you’re edible
And even though you’re not
I’m still going to put your fingers in my mouth
You got lost in a storm
Pulled out down from above
Well you got tired while we got it figured out
You got tired while we got it figured out
When you speak you look incredible
Good enough that I swear you’re edible
And even though you’re not
I’m still going to put your fingers near my mouth
And smell them like little flowers in their waking hour
Mama it will be tragic
Even though it hasn’t even happened yet
You’re just being arrogant
Don’t forget who your friends are
I love your little lady fingers
Stop your soft soft sob and let it go
Stop your soft soft sob and let it go
Wherever you go I will to
I listen to your problems and I’ll be there with you
Mama it will be tragic
Even though it hasn’t even happened yet
You’re just being arrogant
Don’t forget who your friends are
Don’t forget who your friends are
Track Name: Abduct Their Starship
You think you’re special
You think you know you are
Hand picked created and the brightest of them all
You’re transcendental
You think you know it all
Earth is a tomb and the tumor of the cosmos
Please stop be cautious
Your skeleton looks lost without it
Please stop because there’s
No seraphs on the Mortal Pellet
Free up your gardens
Your mental atom is much too crowded
Abduct their starship
Enlighten all the parasitics
When the feet start marching
And the bees taste our pollen
They will see this place is Zion
Transcend expand broaden your dimension
When the feet stop marching
And the leaves all start falling
We will seize your wings with talons
And feed off your freedom
